EBC Prison Mail Writing Night

Monday, August 28, 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm


EBC will begin hosting a mail night at our office to respond to the increasing amount of correspondence we've been receiving from people in prisons and jails across the Country. We are getting lots of questions about prior ballot initiatives including Prop 47 and 57, advocacy support, requests for pen pals, responses to our Night Out for Safety and Liberation letter drive and EBC's work at large. Additionally, there is a statewide call to action for people to submit public comment on California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Prop 57 draft regulations. The Sheriffs and DA's are pressuring CDCR and the administration to reduce the number of people that are covered by Prop 57. We'll work with mail night attendees to provide public comment on the Prop 57 regulations to encourage CDCR to expand eligibility for early parole and credit earning as a way to improve access to rehabilitation in California prisons. Please RSVP to emily@ellabakercenter.org.
